China's State Media: ‘An Asian Era Is Coming’ Under Biden
Chinese Communist Party-controlled Global Times gushes over a 'post-Trump' world
China’s state-run Global Times has declared "the prelude of an Asian Era has begun," under Joe Biden and "post-Trump," citing data which indicates Asia will “contribute roughly 60 percent of global growth” by 2030.
The chilling article also references East Asian societies’ emphasis on “order” over personal freedom, indicating the country will recover fast and more efficiently from COVID-19 than Western nations.
The Chinese Communist Party-controlled newspaper noted:
“By 2025, China’s GDP is expected to catch up with or even surpass that of the US. India may surpass Germany to become the world’s fourth-largest economy."
"The US’ status as the world’s largest economy will be nearing its end. For the first time, three Asian countries will be among the four major economies in the world."
The Global Times indicated that Asia’s growing economic dominance was highlighted in the recent “signing of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) on November 15.”
The newspaper added that the trade pact’s inking “brought together ASEAN [the Association of Southeast Asian Nations] nations, Japan, South Korea, China, Australia, and New Zealand into one of the most diverse and populated trade blocks on Earth."
“It marks a new age for Asian regional cooperation that features multilateralism and trade liberalism. In terms of the global recovery process during the post-pandemic era, this new configuration can accomplish many things.”
The Global Times also indicated that India would be in the future top four global economies by 2025 after it opted out of signing the RCEP on November 15.
The move was in line with India's becoming less dependent on foreign supply chains, which helps China's dominance over Asian manufacturing and trade.
The article, which was written by Wang Wen, a “professor and executive dean of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China,” also argued that East Asian societal norms would help combat the coronavirus pandemic over western countries.
“From the perspective of national governance, East Asian countries, which put emphasis on order in their culture, show more efficiency in fighting against the pandemic, compared with European countries and the US, which purportedly value freedom more,” Wang stated.
“Therefore, Asian countries are also revitalizing their economies faster than other parts of the world.”
A Chinese sociologist recently declared it was "only a matter of time" before China overtakes the United States before putting an end to the Western superpower.
The sociologists' chilling declaration was reported by MEMRI TV, a research organization that tracks Islamic extremism worldwide and anti-Semitism.
“Chinese sociologist Dr. Li Yi said in an October 16, 2020 speech delivered at the Shenzhenwan Dialogue Forum in Shenzhen, China that China would overtake the United States in GDP by 2027, and that COVID-19 has been harmful to the U.S. and Europe but beneficial to China and North Korea,” MEMRI reported.
